eldoLED Unveils New Driver Innovations at LuxLive 2016
LONDON, November 23, 2016 – At LuxLive 2016, eldoLED, an Acuity Brands company, will showcase its newest product innovations: LightShape technology, which simplifies how dynamic white light systems are designed and controlled, and the Acuity Brands industry-leading Indoor Positioning System (IPS), which now includes full-range dimming capabilities for connected luminaires via the IPS-featured eldoLED® drivers.
LightShape eliminates complicated commissioning by embedding the colour tuning intelligence into the driver and using industry standard control (0-10V and DALI) to provide a simple interface to CCT selection and intensity.
The technology allows fixture designers to easily set up and fine-tune the driver and LED module for dynamic white lighting using an eldoLED software application.
In a standard DALI environment, a LightShape-enabled LED driver works with the widely available DT6 compatible controllers, allowing a wide choice of control devices in your lighting system. LightShape enables robust Tunable White and Dim-to-Warm applications with standard controls, standard drivers and standard LED modules.
"LightShape moves us beyond today's project-specific dynamic lighting systems. It allows OEMs to integrate dynamic lighting features in luminaires that can be used with today's standard LED modules and lighting controls," said Albert Berghuis, Vice President – Global OEM Sales. "Also, the LightShape tooling suite enables easy factory programming of colour temperature path and controls interoperability, eliminating the need for onsite commissioning."
LightShape is an update on eldoLED's industry-leading Natural Dimming feature set (dim-to-dark, smooth, minimized flicker), and available on eldoLED's SOLOdrive and DUALdrive LED drivers.
Indoor Positioning Services
Acuity Brands IPS is the industry's first full-stack Platform-as-a-Service, featuring ultra-precise LED-based indoor positioning, wayfinding and Bluetooth® beaconing technology, robust and comprehensive mapping, an analytics suite for dwell, traffic and app utilization, and cloud-based network and data management. Providing both VLC and smooth dimming now allows for tuning light levels within a space to help reduce energy usage and attain code compliance. Beyond light level tuning, the ECOdrive also dims to 1% for architectural and aesthetic purposes.
The eldoLED ECOdrive family is the electronics and firmware foundation for the Acuity Brands IPS solution and is currently installed in more than 325,000 IPS-enabled fixtures covering 32.5 million square feet of retail floor space.
Acuity Brands IPS employs both Visual Light Communications (VLC) for centimeter level phone-in-hand accuracy, plus Bluetooth low energy (BLE) technology for meter level accuracy phone-in-pocket accuracy. The solution supports existing and new mobile loyalty apps through a commercially available software development kit (SDK) for Android and iOS devices. The LED-based system runs on both wired and wireless networks, powered by the ECYLPSE family of LED controllers from Acuity Controls. The solution can also easily integrate into building management systems via open BACnet integration capability, Lonworks and other building control protocols.
